Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 24.1.20


 In Maths- fractions of amounts, adding fractions and function machines. They will be bringing home an activity to do over the weekend.


We looked at function machines, where a number is inputted, an operation happens to the number and then it is outputted. For example, 6 goes in and 10 comes out, so the operation was add 4. Obviously you can make the numbers and operation harder or easier to suit your child. We tried two step operations too, so x2 and -5. 


 Have a go at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=FunctionMachinev3 and make some up of your own.  


In ICT-we used created a class database of information. Using HwB, we created individual records for all of us, using different fields- such as name, age, gender, height etc. We talked about where databases are used and their effectiveness at storing and retrieving huge amounts of information, e.g doctor records etc. 


In Humanities we looked again at the main animal classification groups of animals, including mammals, reptiles, birds etc. We talked about what makes a bird a bird and a fish a fish, using the term characteristics. It was lovely to see children bring in books from home to help with this work. Could they find out a bit more about animal kingdom classification, including insects and spiders. Are there animals belonging to each group that share a slightly different characteristic, for example are there any birds that don't lay eggs?


In Welsh we worked on time telling- Faint o'r gloch ydy hi ? un o'r gloch, dau o'r gloch etc. We talked about chwarter wedi and chwarter I for quarter past and quarter to the hour.


Here is a link to some short stories. They can read one and and complete a book review to share their thoughts and opinions of it. Will be great to see them. If they'd like to, they can create a book review template of their own.

Remember to practise your weekly spellings and high frequency words from reading record diaries. Keep working on 3 and 4 times tables too.


Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips


Year 6 Home learning w.e. 24.01.20

This week we have been

Literacy – creating story maps and writing diary entries.

Numeracy – volume of cubes and cuboids, creating a top trumps style game

 

This week we have been busy working on our new topic Dreigiau and as part of the topic I have set the children a task to complete their own learning on any aspect of dragons they wish to learn about.  This will replace the usual presentations this term as the children will present their learning to the class during the last week before Easter.  The children are beginning to work on their projects in school and they can also work on them at home.  It will be great to see the different ideas the children have.  Each child will have up to 10 minutes to present and share the work they have completed.

 

I have also set mymaths for the children this week – some of the activities are tricky but have a go using what you have learnt and what you already know.

 

Remember to keep learning times tables and spellings ready for next week.

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Year 1 learning blog

Good evening,

 

This week we have looked at money in maths, recognising coins and notes as well as looking at what coins we need to afford different items.

 

As our topic is Time we have looked at the Christian belief of creation. In the following weeks we shall compare this belief of creation to other faiths.

 

For homework it would be nice for the children to create their own clocks to get them used to the numbers found in clocks and what the hands are called. Here are some examples of the clocks they could make. https://www.hellowonderful.co/post/9-CREATIVE-DIY-CLOCKS-TO-HELP-KIDS-TELL-TIME/. They don't have to be  clocks, you can make some interesting, and tasty, clocks from sticks of carrot or other food items.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team

Year 4 week ending 17th January 2020

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – this week has been all about fractions, in particular finding equivalent fractions.


Literacy – we have begun our new novel "Dragon Gold" by Shoo Rayner and started the BBC 500 words competition by following the live lesson.


Humanities – we have found that dragons live in six main habitats, so have been researching the features of those habitats.


P.E – using the theme tune from "How to Train Your Dragon" the children have begun to choreograph their own dance based upon a dragon hatching and learning to fly.


How you can help at home:


Numeracy –  this week homework is on comparing fractions, set on my maths.  We have also been concentrating of our 6 times table using the BBC website Supermovers.  Click on the link and have a go – try getting your whole family involved!

Literacy – we are proud to be entering the BBC Radio 2 500 words competition this year.  Discuss your plans and ideas at home and try drawing an illustration to go with it.


Humanities – as we are learning about different habitats, we would like you to identify different countries where these may be found.  The six main habitats are mountains, deserts, prairies, forests, jungle and Arctic regions.


Spellings – please remember to practise your spellings. Try writing them and combing them in sentences or even a story to show you understand them.


Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips

Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 10.1.20


We kicked off our new topic 'Dragons' by working collaboratively with Year 5 and Year 6 to plan what we may like to cover across different areas of learning, for example Chinese New Year in Humanities, dragon dances in expressive arts etc.

We looked at the characteristics of different types of dragons. Perhaps you could start thinking about designing your own dragon. What would it be called? Where would it live etc.

 

In Maths- Co-ordinates and recognising lines of symmetry in shapes. 3 and 6 times table.


In ICT-we used created a class database of information. Using HwB, we created individual records for all of us, using different fields- such as name, age, gender, height etc. We talked about where databases are used and their effectiveness at storing and retrieving huge amounts of information, e.g doctor records etc. 


In PE, we enjoyed playing 'King of the ring' in hockey, where we practised dribbling and defending our ball from an attacker who was trying to tackle us. Great fun!


Spelling days of the week and months of year.


You can help at home-


In Maths- Perhaps draw a treasure map and use co-ordinates to locate items you might include, such as lakes, volcanoes, bridges, etc. Remember the x and y axis.

Have a look at https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/maths-ks2-finding-lines-of-symmetry/zktfgwx
